I celebrated my birthday in this nice czar-era restaurant. The food is from the Russian czar era, here you can eat like a real Russian nobleman. It is quite pricey, but well worth the price. Service is good, food is great and the interior is fantastic. I had reserved a private room for my birthday party, so it was particularly... More

Saslik is the best place in town. The moment you enter you are in a different world. I take every visitor I get there and its always a success. The atmosphere is great. Everybody is happy and dinner is entertained by live music. The food is very hearty and the portions are huge. I usually eat Ivan's sword. The restaurant... More

My starter was 'Blini with three types of roe'. Excellent! Top marks. Slightly pricey. For my main I had the 'Wild mushroom stroganoff'. Very tasty. Close to top marks. For dessert we had the 'Baked Alaska à la Catherine the Great' (prepared for two or more persons). A slight disappointment there. It looked impressive but the structure and taste of... More

I have been going to this restaurant for more than 20 years when visiting Finland. I had a chance to spend my 30 year celebration with my wife during our Helsinki visit and we were lucky to get a nice private "booth" that enabled us to really relax and enjoy Russian delicacies. The service was unbelievable and there was no... More

The food just doesn't let you down. Big, delicious portions. Doesn't really matter what you choose from the menu, I haven't yet been disatified. This is very popular, so it is always very cowded. Not much space, which on the other hand makes the atmosphere.

Well, I must say that I was expecting bit more as I knew the reputation of this restaurant. Food was ok but didn't make me feel satisfied totally, something was missing? The service and staff was very friendly and the atmosphere is unique. Anyway, food did not play the main role if I may say so. So I think it's... More

Delightful experience. The decor is very tsar-period russian, ambiance is perfect. Portions are very generous and very delicious. We ordered the "appetizer sampler" for 2 people, and it was perfect for the 5 of us. The Ivan's Sword of meat was cooked perfectly.

This restaurant has one of the most interesting decors I've ever seen. There are several different dining rooms, each with a different theme. The food is great but it's the atmosphere that really warrants a five star rating. For a classy, fun dinner out, Saslik is tops.
